Boeing has awarded a contract to Bharat Forge to supply titanium forgings for Boeing 777X airplane.

The titanium forgings will be developed and manufactured by Bharat Forge using a closed die forging process. The first two forgings are scheduled to begin shipping to Boeing in late 2016, and will be followed by two more forgings in early 2017, Boeing said in a statement Tuesday.

Bharat Forge completed its first shipment of titanium flap-track forgings for the Next-Generation 737 earlier this year. The company will also supply forgings for the 737 MAX, scheduled to enter service in 2017.
